DRY-STONE WALL

DSCF1841

A skilfully constructed Derbyshire dry-stone wall. Despite having no mortar to hold the stones together it will last a considerable length of time, and I so admire the people who continue to practise this craft.

Different areas of Britain have different construction techniques, and the Millennium Wall Project at the National Stone Centre in Derbyshire shows walls from all over the country. If you would like a look, go to this site: http://www.nationalstonecentre.org.uk
